Friends/family:

During our #Lental/Easter season let us without hesitation #generously #donate #resources to those who are #less-fortunate or unable to do better for themselves and/or their families. You and I may have #ample #food and I for one do not one to know or see others being hungry.

#Hunger #plagues many poor #widows, #orphans #families in the #NewYork area, and many are too #ashamed to ask for #help. Some are even #not-qualified based #income-slidingscale to receive meager assistance, and for a #man supporting his family week by week and in some cases day by day this is most #disheartening and may make him feel less than a man. Let’s help him take care of himself, his family and keep his pride intact. Hell the children get their food, school clothing and other clothing to lift their sense of worth and value. Simple things we take for granted like a pair of shoes makes a huge difference to a child, medicine and therapy is often sorely lacking. The need is great, we can make a difference,

Locate a local nonprofit or church and be specific where you would like your donation to go. Let’s make a difference today! #caribguhl

Fire on the subway MTA/LIRR

Fire on the subway MTA/LIRR

State of disgust

LIRR seats


I take the Long Island Rail Road to work mostly. I detest the putrid trains. The vagrants, the stench, the vermin, the utter sewer we pay for the privilege and honor of commuting daily.  Got on the LIRR this morning and I am thrown into a perpetual state of disgust, reminding me of the very subway trains I have tried to not use, unless I absolutely must.

What am I sitting in really????

I feel like I am about to lose my tummy. The smell is so bad in car 7367 on the 5:52 commuter from Jamaica to Atlantic that I’m sitting here wondering if I’m possibly sitting in the barf?  

Who has it worse?

Fire on MTAs tracks


When will this system ever get better?  I See people run on and off the trains at some stations, armed with brooms and shovel.  They look as disgruntled as the commuters who have to ride on the swill.  Who has it worse, the commuters or the employees?  I guess it’s equanimity but I pay to ride and I expect the trains as well as its environs to be clean, smelling decent, and not roach, rats and other vermin infested😰😰😰😰😰 UUUUUGGGGGHHHHH!!!!

NYC rats out of control
I started writing this post at 6:50 am.  It is now 6:59 pm and I’m still super irritated at the state of our mass transit system.  

Commuting back home versus commuting to work does not hold a special place for me as it should, and that disturbs me terribly.  Every experience I have, especially when I invest in it, like I do with the very expensive MTA cost, should have some level of comfort.  Bah humbug!!!!!  Why do I have to complain like a hag over something this simple?  We pay  to ride, shouldn’t they make the experience  more palatable?

Hope tomorrow brings a cleaner ride🤔. I can hope can I ?

Life’s little surprises

Life’s little surprises

I’m having my gallstone removed on Thursday this week so.  But I’m sitting in the emergency room of Queens Hospital because my pre-op revealed my pressure is really high, and they are unable to clear me for surgery unless my diastolic dropped below 90.  Right now it’s 167/115.  


I arrived here @11:10 for an 11:30 appointment. Everything was ok until they took my blood pressure.

I knew this morning I wasn’t feeling that hot, but I ha no idea my pressure was that high.  A slight headache has now turned into my eyes feeling cloudy, and a tiny pain in my left arm has now escalated to a more noticeable stabbing effect.

I am uncertain as to whether or not the procedure will take place on Thursday or not because everything is dependent on my pressure dropping below 90 at this juncture., but I am optimistic😃

Still life
Like my nurse said earlier in the main hospital – try to think about something which relaxes you. I guess that’s why I’m writing this now 💕

Namaste – Crystal

Queens Hospital
